Cloud Computing Brings Greater Productivity and Robust Security to Law Firms
ESSENTIAL MOBILITY, SECURITY, AND REGULATORY COMPLIANCE
Legal professionals are frequently on the move, yet maintaining access to client data to fuel billable hours is a cornerstone of the legal profession. Solutions that enable fast, secure access to practice management apps and data, such as document management systems (DMS), and client files while mobile is important for productivity. At the same time, law firms must secure sensitive client data and meet ever-changing regulatory requirements. As firms grow, whether through mergers and acquisitions or expansion into new geographies, IT infrastructure must easily scale to support these new opportunities.
LAW FIRMS FACE UNIQUE CHALLENGES
Physical desktops as endpoint devices do not meet the mobility needs of legal professionals. As a result, many legal firms have tried traditional, on- premises VDI only to be caught by surprise at the complexity and ever-rising OpEx that goes with it. Collectively, these solutions present serious challenges for legal IT teams: Virtual desktop and application implementations can take 6-9 months and require expensive IT specialists. Challenges IT teams face with traditional end user computing methods include:
- Inability to provide secure, mobile access to apps and data from any device
- Difficulties addressing a dynamic regulatory environment and proving compliance
- Lack of seamless integration with document management systems (DMS), time tracking and eDiscovery solutions
- Unreliable legacy VDI solutions burn IT cycles and frustrate lawyers and staff
- Confidential client data residing on-premises is at-risk
- Costly, redundant infrastructure required for disaster preparedness Moreover, when law firms grow, they face the additional challenge of provisioning corporate desktops for the sudden influx of new users. Delays in onboarding new lawyers directly affect the bottom line.
